Giltedge Group: Executive Chairman
Sean grew up travelling with his family on 4×4, camping and adventure holidays across Southern Africa. After completing a 4-year Business Science Honours degree at the University of Cape Town, and a few years working and travelling abroad, he cut his teeth in South Africa’s adventure travel industry – mainly river adventures and later touring.
In 2001 Sean founded Giltedge Travel with Murray Gardiner. They began their journey with Pam Golding as a partner. In 2008 bought their shares and together grew the business into the international company it is today, with offices in the United States and representatives around the world. Today, the Giltedge Group offers a full suite of travel businesses such as inbound and outbound travel, business and incentive travel.
Sean is passionate about experiencing new destinations and learning about products in Africa and the rest of the world. He loves working with his team and other people within the industry, as well as discussing opportunities to grow the industry as a whole as travel is a vital employer in Africa!
